Working Group on Partnerships

Chair, Karen Judd Smith

This Working Group explores, tests, and promotes innovative partnerships within the UNODC framework with the objective to streamline the urgently needed contributions of civil society, including NGOs, institutes, and private sector to address the urgent and growing threats and challenges to global health and stability wrought by intentional disruption by transnational organized crime and the unintentional impact of fast-changing technologies and their widespread adoption.

The assumption is that with decreases in UN and UNODC funding, adaptive and highly functioning partnerships between member states, UNODC, civil society, the private sector, academia, and experts are all the more urgently needed.

A core principles at play in this approach is that of smart collective intelligence which lends itself to the inclusion of intelligence informatics (AI and big data analytics, etc.) and other evolving technologies practicable.

The Working Group has 3 Phases in the lead-up to the 2020 Crime Congress, including:

Phase I: Solve 2018
Phase II: Understanding the Human Element at Play in Tech (and crime) @ Crime Commission 2019
Phase III: Global Connect @ the 2020 Crime Congress.
